In this blog, we are going to talk about how breast lift surgery can affect breastfeeding. We will discuss the options available to you and your doctor, as well as things you can do to ensure that you have a smooth recovery and get back on track with breastfeeding after your procedure.
Breast Lift Surgery and Breastfeeding
There are many factors to consider when deciding whether or not to have breast lift surgery. One of these factors is whether or not it will affect your ability to nurse your child. Many women wonder if they can continue breastfeeding after having a breast lift, and fortunately, the answer is yes! Most women who undergo this procedure are able to continue breastfeeding without any problems.
However, there are some things that may influence how quickly you return to full breastfeeding once you’ve had your surgery. These include:
The type of incision made during the procedure (vertical or horizontal)
The amount of skin removed from each breast (if any)
can breast lift and tummy tuck be done at the same time
Is it Possible to Have a Tummy Tuck and Breast Surgery at the Same Time?
Added on 18th February 2020
When we combine tummy tuck and breast surgery together, this is more commonly known as a mummy makeover procedure. As years have gone by, there have been wider surgical options available within the mummy makeover surgery for you to provide improved forms of rejuvenation.
Can a tummy tuck and breast surgery be performed at the same time?
Yes, it is possible to perform the two procedures at the same time on you. From performing a mummy makeover procedure, it provides you with the possibility of total rejuvenation of the breasts and abdomen area. This would be ideal if you’re looking to reduce the excess fat that has developed around the waist. There’s also the benefit of improving the appearance of the breast if they’ve ‘sagged’ due to ageing or weight increase.
What are the most common options available?
For breast options, the following procedures are available:
– Breast implants
– Breast lift
– Breast reduction
– Fat transfer
For the abdomen region, these options available include:
– Tummy tuck
– Body lifting
Within the mummy makeover procedure, the tummy tuck and breast surgery procedures are the most common. However, in recent times we have also seen patients opt for an abdominoplasty and fat transfer procedure. Another form of combined procedure that is common is a tummy tuck, fat transfer and breast lift all together.
If you’re looking to have the option of a tummy tuck, fat transfer and breast lift then there is something worth noting. When the tummy tuck is performed and the fat has been harvested, if the fat hasn’t been used at the same time then it will no longer be available to use in the future. This tends to be an option that patients are taking up in the initial phase of their treatment in order to prevent breast augmentation in the future.
As always, it’s important to run through these options during a consultation. This way, you’ll be able to understand the full options available to you and what would be suitable. We can also go through the pros and cons of each surgery. Contact UK Aesthetic today to book yourself in for a consultation. Feel free to also browse our mummy makeover case study page to understand other patients results after undergoing the surgery.
